EXPERIENCES OF THE FACULTY IN 
EUROPE. 



Several members of the Wellesley Faculty were 
traveling in Europe at the time of the outbreak of 
the war, and their experiences in the war zone and 
in writing out of it, were \ery interesting. 

Dr. Lockwood, Miss McDowell and Dr. Ray- 
mond were in Germany when hostilities began. 
Dr. Lockwood traveled from Baden to Frankfurt 
and from Frankfurt to Rotterdam by trains so 
crowded with German soldiers that there was 
standing room only, and by a Dutch freight steamer 
on the Rhine, upon her arrival in Rotterdam 
acted for a time as secretary to the American consul, 
and sailed for America on August 29 Miss Mc- 
Dowell, who was in Brandenburg, also secured 
passage by the Holland-American Line, sailing from 
Rotterdam after a journey of the utmost difficult)-, 
which had taken three days instead of a scheduled 
ten hours, occupying, on shipboard, a state-room 
newly constructed from what had been the third- 
class dining-room, and where fresh paint and rats 
abounded. 



NO. 2. 



Dr. Raymond's experience was uneventful, and 

singularly free from discomfo 

Dr. Hants, Mi-- Fletcher and Mi-- Miller, all 
of the Departmenl of Latin, were in Rome. They 
returned without difficulty. Mi— Edwards, of 
the Greek Department, who had been spending 
a year in Greece, 31 age for New York, 

with twelve other Americans on a (.reek freighter, 
carrying a cargo of currants, the journey taking 
twenty-four days. 

Mi-- Hayes, Mi-s Dally and Miss Streibert 
were in Switzerland. Mi-- Hayes and Miss Dally 
were in Lucerne when news of the war came. After 
waiting for two weeks in Bern, they -tarted for Paris 
by way of Geneva. At every border they were 
forced to show passport-. Twice they were delayed 
for five hours. At Digione, French soldiers gave 
them coffee. They finally reached Paris, at night, 
having subsisted for the twenty-eight hours pre- 
vious on bread and milk chocolate. The rest of 
their trip to London was uneventful, although they 
passed within twenty-five miles of the battle line. 

On September 10, they sailed from Liverpool. 
Miss Streibert 's experience was very similar. As 
did most of the other members of the Facultx . -h< 
passed among soldiers, refugees, prisoners and 
Red Cross camps. 

Mis- Smith sailed from Liverpool on August 13. 
The steamer came under sealed orders, and carried 
five thousand bags of mail. 



PEACE SUNDAY. 



The day of prayer for peace, appointed by Presi- 
dent Wilson, was observed in both the momin.L' 
and evening services at the Houghton Memorial 
Chapel on Sunday. In the morning Rev. Edward 
Noyes of Newton Center, conducted the service. 
The text of his sermon was Colossians 1 : 18. The 
choir sang a special peace anthem, arranged by Mr. 
Macdougall from the beautiful peace passage in 
Second Isaiah — "The Lord shall judge among the 
nations." The offering of the day, except that 
given especially for the Christian Association, was 
turned into the Red Cross relief fund. 

In the evening President Pendleton made a 
special prayer for peace, and the peace anthem 
was repeated in the chi *ir. 



THE PIT ENTERTAINS. 



These cool October evenings find many parties 
abroad, bent on enjoying the moonlight in com- 
bination with camp-fire suppers. The small and 
exclusive pit across the outlet has been sacrified to 
utility and now forms part of the chicken farm, 
but the large sand pit on the edge of the golf 
links has been received into popular favi >i an 1 every 
night from its sheltered depths the glow of fires and 
the ple°sant odor of roasting rises 



SOPHOMORE SERENADE. 



A stirring drum-beat called the attention of the 
waiting Freshmen to the approach of the Sopho- 
more serenaders on Saturday evening, October 3. 
It was a well-trained battalion that stepped forth 
so briskly beneath waving lanterns: — three hundred 
strong, behind an imposing drum-major. The 
regimental uniform of white, with blue collars and 
girdles, was \-i -r\ becoming. The usual advice 
was musically given and musically received; the 
most popular song briny last year's "Comp. and 
Math, and Hygiene all the day."

PROVINCIALISM. 



We cannot let last week's gift to the Red Cross 
Society pass without a word of praise. We hope 
that Wellesley College is grateful to those who have 
awakened her to a sense of her share of responsi- 
bility for lightening the burden of hardship which 
is pressing so sore upon the peoples of Europe and 
Asia. We have Indeed been singularly blessed in 
being spared, alone among the great nations, from 
the horrors of war, and it is doubtless impossible 
for those of us who have not seen, to comprehend 
more than a little of the suffering and devastation 
which these last weeks have brought But when 
we consider the hideousness of the vampire which 
is hanging over our sister-nations, sucking the life 
from their commerce, their art, their scientific 
progress, robbing them of their most precious 
vitality, we cannot be so provincial as to feel that 
we have no share in what has been truly called a 
"world-disaster." The progress of civilization has 
intermingled the interests of the nations too closely 
for it to be possible for one to escape wholly the 
trouble of the others. We do not refer to relatively 
small present inconveniences so much as to the 
check which is being put upon the development of 
that which, for want of a better word, we must call 
civilization. There are two duties which devolve 
upon the United States and upon us as her citizens: 
First, to allay, in so far as we may, present distress; 
second, to stand ready, when the present is past to 
offer to share the best that we have been able to 
learn. 

Yet, further, we can show that in this time which 
is marked by the greatest war in history, that we 
whose fathers fought wars for causes that they 
judged just, can learn the high courage of all those 
who are fighting now for the things that they value 
above life. In the pride of our little knowledge we 
have doubtless formed opinions as to the righteous- 
ness of the nations' causes; but, whatever diplomatic 
power we favor, we can realize that the common 
people who are nearest to us are fighting and suffer- 
ing, inspired by a glorious patriotism to which we, 
who have never been tried, may well pay impartial 
homage. 

THE BURDEN OF ATLAS. 



"America's economic and industrial respon- 
sibility," "America's political responsibility; "- from 
the pulpit, the lecture-platform, the magazine, 
the daily paper, such phrases are hurled at us, 
striking us into a state of awe, a state of con- 
scious growth, and, with it, a state of pride. Amer- 
ica is the only one of the so-called "powers" of 
this universe that has escaped the dark bewilder- 
ment of the war-web. The barbarism underlying 
gold braid and human machines, the hideousness of 
the exacting spectre Militarism, we have seen, and 
we alone have found them not good. Therefore 
are we proud — of ourselves and of our restraint. 
"Sanity," Wilson has given to be our watchword; 
yet the mass is tense when it finds itself blood- 
splashed from beyond seas. Therefore have the 
clear-sighted resolved that, amid the crash of 
dynasties, principles of government shall yet be 
upheld, traditions shall live on, the industrial 
proletariat shall not starve for want of material 



and outlet for their productive mills. Ragnarok 
the Twilight of the Gods, may darken Europe, yet 
shall America the Responsible watch over the 
precarious flame of civilization. 

It is good; yet there is another responsibility, 
peculiarly ours here at College. It has little to do 
with the maintenance of the democratic ideal of 
government, little to do with the cotton industiy 
and the "Buy a Bale" Club. What it does concern, 
and that nearly, is the cultural future of the world. 

Oxford quadrangles hear the clangor of ambu- 
lance-bells, and in the famous halls are lines of 
white cots— for Oxford is a field-hospital. The 
German universities are closed; and why should 
they stand open? Educable youth and educating 
maturity are alike with the army. A new genera- 
tion does not grow up in a day. It is upon Amer- 
ican universities and colleges that the glorious and 
terrible responsibility lies — the responsibility of 
keeping alive cultural standard?, of educating the 
coming generation of the great and the normal 
making up the world. 

German and English scientists, Belgian artists, 
French poets, Italian musicians are fighting; and the 
black-mouthed war-dogs do not stop for the world's 
genuises. They lick up a Kreisler or a Maeterlinck 
as greedily as they do Jean, the blacksmith from 
Upper Lorraine. Artists and poets and musicians 
constitute another crop that ripens only under the 
Peace-Sun; and the world of the next decade will 
look to America, to the American universities, for 
its men and women of keen thought, of skillful 
touch. To us is it given — a privilege and a lofty 
responsibility to be appreciated, and to be used to 
the full. The world rests on our shoulders. Shall 
we be as strong and as patient as Atlas? 



FREE PRESS. 



I. 
A Voice from the Tomr. 
In the News published just before the close of 
College last June, there was a Free Press on the 
subject of try-outs for Barn plays. The writer 
judged that the existing method of appointing the 
cast for such plays did not discover the best histrionic 
talent of the undergraduate body, since there were 
no open try-outs. Theoretically, this method of 
elimination on a large scale would eventually bring 
out a good deal of ability, but there are difficulties of 
a practical nature to be reckoned with. Try-outs 
for an all college cast would mean several evenings 
devoted to giving every applicant a fair chance, 
and after these first trials more narrow ones would 
have to take place. In the end the time spent in 
try-outs would be out of proportion to the six re- 
hearsals allowed for the actual preparation of the 
play. Were the College smaller, or time for dra- 
matic ventures unlimited, this free-for-all method 
would undoubtedly be the fairest. The officers of 



the Barn have realized this fact, and have tried to 
carry it out as far as possible. While no large try- 
ouls are held, the usual procedure is to select several 
persons for one part, and to apply the method of 
elimination by merit. The Barn has tried in 
selecting these persons to seek out those who 
have not appeared before on the College stage, or 
have not held major parts. Occasionally seasoned 
"actors" and actresses appear who have been tried 
and not found wanting. However, to exist from 
year to year the Barn must constantly discover new 
material. Village Seniors can help the president of 
the Barn to a large extent by letting her know of 
promise in that unknown quantity, the Freshman 
class. Chairmen of former Sophomore and Junior 
plays can very easily keep lists of the talented 
girls who have tried out, and bring them to the 
president's attention. The violet need no longer 
blush unseen if co-operation of this sort goes on, 
and a Duse or Bernhardt will be given every chance- 
to prove her worth.

11. 
The New Social Schedule. 

Among other changes of which 11c have heard 
since our return this falUis that very important 
one in the Social Schedule. In former years Wednes- 
day afternoon has been the established time for 
Student Government and class meetings, and the 
periods after 4.05 have been kept free for these 
appointments. With the Christian Association 
meeting in the evening, Wednesday was particularly 
busy, and it was difficult for those of us whose 
Thursday schedule was heavy to give adequate 
preparation for those classes. Many girls, too, pre- 
ferred the Wednesday afternoon matinee to the 
routine of organization meetings; so that the at- 
tendance at those meetings was not as large as was? 
desired. 

The further change in the Social Schedule is the 
adoption of Friday, instead of Monday, as the 
evening for recitals, lectures and concerts. The 
former Monday evening meetings were, as one of 
the members of the Faculty expressed it, "a relic 
of the time when Monday was a free day," and the 
students were able to get a good start on the class 
assignments for the week. With the present 
schedule of academic appointments, however, most 
lower classmen at least, find their schedule cards 
well crowded on Monday afternoon and Tuesday 
morning with a call-out or gymnasium class in be- 
tween times. Under such circumstances it was 
extremely difficult to plan our work. The new 
Friday evening schedule ought to eliminate a great 
deal of this difficulty; for since there are no classes 
on Saturday afternoon and fewer classes on Satur- 
day morning than on any other day, no schedule- 
should be heavy enough to prevent us from at- 
tending the lectures. 

The new plans have been met with general ac- 
clamation and satisfaction from those who have 
experienced the schedule just withdrawn.

THE WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS. 



FOR TIIK FIRK FUND. 

h i* a pleasure to present i" the Wellcslej pub- 
lic a report oi some ol the efforts ol Alumnae i<> 
raise money during the summer. While grate- 
fully acknowledging them, we would call attention 
to the fad that the remaining i im< is short and the 
sum yet to be raised formidable. The example of 
these Wellesley women should incite others to 
redouble l heir energy, and it is hoped that these 
notices maj offer valuable suggest ions to those 
who arc anxious to help. 

From eight Wellesley Alumna- in Hawaii, comes 
three hundred dollars as the resull of "College- 
Capers" given in Honolulu, where UYIleslev girls, 
assisted by Harvard, Cornell, Bryn Mawr and other 
college men and women, conducted the first com- 
mencement exercises ol "Aloha ( )ollege"of imaginary 
fame. This very success! ul entertainment numbered 
among its features an academic procession and the 
presentation of degrees to leading citizsns by the 
"Chancellor of Aloha College," amid shouts of 
laughter from the audience; and a graphic repro- 
duction of a Wellesley fire-drill was given ("Welles- 
ley girls very kindly supplied by (he Honolulu 
School for Boys!"). A Hasty Pudding Play was 
given by Harvard men. Each college represented 
had a booth, Wellesley 's being a mere skeleton 
constructed from the charred remains of a burned 
building. At the close an auction of the college 
buildings was held, and the evening ended with a 
"J unior Prom" for which Wellesley badge \ in 
place of dance tickets, were sold by the ushers. 

A benefit performance of Marie Warren's "A 
1 w ig of Thorn" has just been given in New I laven, 
at which Miss Beulah Hepburn. 1912, danced. 

Four hundred and thirty dollar.-- was made by a 
"Frolic" given at Andover Academy in June, by 
Wellesley girls from Andover. Lawrence, Bradford, 
Reading and Methuen. 

News of Miss Hazard is always welcome, and it 
is to her personal effort and to the work of her com- 
mittee that we owe the sum which resulted from the 
interesting program given at Hazard Castle, Narra- 
ganselt Pier, on July II. The program, including 
dances by the Peacedale and Wakefield school 
children and songs by the Wellesley < dee Club, won 
merited applause from a large audience. Eight 
hundred and twenty-five dollars was made for the 
fund. 

The Concord group of Wellesley women have 
sent in two hundred and eight dollars, the proceeds 
of a "package party" supplemented by ten-dollar 
pledges. Invitations were sent out in this form: 

"Won't you bring a package 
With you, buy one, too, 
For the Wellesley Fire Fund? 
This we ask of you. 

Tie your package tightly, 

On it mark the price — 
Ten, twenty-five or fifty cents; 

We'll sell it in a ti ice. 

At Mrs. Walcott's, Elm Street, 
May seventh, three to five, 

Jellies, fudge, a cup of tea, 
Will your hearts revive." 

The package party proved a simple way to raise 
a small amount of money, — ninety dollars, in this 
case. 

The Boston Wellesley Club held a benefit per- 
formance of "Along Came Ruth" at the Plymouth 
Theater on September 22, at which seven hundred 
and twenty-five dollars was cleared They are 
also planning to give, on November 17, both after- 
noon and evening, a Sousa concert . Wellesley people 
in the vicinity are asked to "save this date and 
start at once to interest \ our friends." 

Three hundred dollars was received from a very 
successful bazaar and the dansant given this 
summer by Mary Chase Locfcwood at the Wis- 
casset Bungalows, Pocono Mountains.

to our customers that the assortment of Original Foreign Models, and Our

A benefit, in the form of a clever college vaude- 
ville was given in Medford, Mass. All the num- 
bers were contributed by representatives of various 
New England colleges. Eight hundred and twenty- 
seven dollars was cleared. 

Wellesley Alumnae of Duluth, Minnesota, raised 
four hundred and twenty-five dollars this summer at 
a benefit at which the Wellesley moving-picture 
films were used. 

From Reading, Mass., one hundred and twenty- 
five dollars raised by a moving-picture performance, 
and four Alumnae of Red Bank, N. J., sent four 
hundred and sixty-five dollars as the result of a 
performance of which the Les Miserables films were 
shown. 

The Rhode Island Alumnae have many and 
profitable enterprises to their credit. On June 
1, the "Myth of Pandora" was given at the Moses 
Brown School, in Providence. Beulah Hepburn, 
1912, Polly Lawrence, 1909, and Bertha Schedler, 
191 1, were among the principal dancers. Eight 
hundred and seventy-five dollars was cleared. Eight 
hundred and twenty-five dollars was sent in as the 
result of a Garden Party, given August 1 ; and from 
the same club have come goodly sums from various 
other sources: Bridge parties at Block Island and 
Barrington, a play at Sakonnet, and a lecture at 
Newport. 

There is now ready a "Wellesley Cook Book" 
published by the Utah Wellesley Club. It is a 
gift book edition, very attractively printed and 
bound, and contains many famous Wellesley recipes, 
"from the president's house, dormitories, societies, 
from Alumnae in Japan, Turkey, Germany, from 
Maine to California." Think of "Bean Soup with 
Sausage," "Manana-land," "Stickies" and "New 
Jean Cake," and order a copy at once! They may 
be obtained from Mrs. Arthur P. Stone, Eleventh 
East Street, Salt Lake City. Price, fifty cents. 



A postal card, done by Harold Sichel, .111 ex- 
quisite appreciation of the spirit of Tree Day, may 
be had from Muriel Windram Sichel, 130 Wesl 
34th Street, N. V. These cards are fifty c< nts a 
dozen, six for twenty-five cents, or five cents apiece. 
If ordered by Wellesley clubs, they may be had for 
two cents apiece, retailing at five cents; a profit 
of three cents being credited to the club. Do your 
Christmas ordering now! 

The poem by Frances L. Ferrero, originally 
published with the etching of College Hall D5 
Margaret H. Wright, has been set to music and 
is now being sold for the fund. This song could 
well be included on Wellesley Benefit programs and 
copies might be sold later as souvenirs. 



WOMEN'S EDUCATIONAL AND INDUS- 
TRIAL UNION. 



My experience during the past year has been 
that our Wellesley community does not really 
know what the Women's Educational and Indus- 
trial Union stands for, or what it is doing, and that 
one has only to place before any member of the 
College some meagre outline of its varied activities 
to meet with an instant and sympathetic response 
to an appeal for co-operation, at least to the ex- 
tent of becoming a member. The advantages of 
membership are certainly mutual; for, while the 
Union depends upon membership fees for part of 
the expenses of its social-educational work, it 
offers various benefits to the members who pay 
the small annual fee of one dollar. 

Every member appreciates the convenient Rest 
Room and the Members' Lunch Room, although 
in the present restricted quarters one must usually 
allow r extra time during rush hours in return for 
the certain excellence of the food that is served; 
but student members will often find the Reference 
Library of especial value. It is situated on the

Wellesley students are well informed as to the 
aims of the Appointment Bureau, administered 
by Miss Florence Jackson, a former member of the 
Wellesley Chemistry Department. Miss Mabel 
Curtis, 1890, the field agent of the Bureau, is en-

The Bureau is especially at the service of college

or to advise them in preparing for unusual and pio- 
neer positions. 

The training courses for teachers of industrial

the direction of Mrs. Lucinda \Y. Prince, Wellesley, 
'9 T_ 93. a nd Miss Helen Norton, 1905, is associate 
director. This year the following Wellesley grad- 
uates are taking the course: Dorothy Ayer, 1914, 
Ruth Benjamin, 1914, Katherine J. Dennis, 1914, 
Man," Grosvenor, 1914, Agnes Shand, 1914, Carlena 
Walker, 1910, and Harriet Goddard, 1902. Miss 
Dorothy Applegate, 1912, is working on material 
for the director, which will probably be. published 
later. Visitors are most welcome at these classes, 
and the demonstration sales that are held fre- 
quently are as instructive to the visitors as to the 
young saleswomen from Boston department stores 
in all that pertains to the psychology of the counter. 

Each year there are three fellowships offered in 
Industrial Research, under the direction of Miss 
Susan M. Kingsbury cf Simmons College, which 
Wellesley students and graduates should know 
about. Miss Louise Moore, 190S, holds one of the 
fellowships this year. The fellows receive a stipend 
and work on the problem assigned for the year. 
The training thus afforded has prepared women foi 
positions as special investigators for city and state 
institutions. 

The names of many Wellesley women have been 
associated with the union, and there is quite a 
group at present engaged in the work of che several 
departments. President Pendleton, Professor Balch, 
Professor Hart, Miss Florence Converse and Miss 
Helen Goss are numbered among the Trustees and 
Advisory Committees; Mrs. Prince, Miss Norton 
and Miss Jackson have been mentioned already; 
and associated with me in the financial office are 
Miss Mabel T. Champlin, 1903, Assistant Fnancial 
Secretary, and Miss Caroline Noble, 1890. I speak 
for all of these latter when I say that we are always 
glad to receive Wellesley friends and show them the 
many interesting activities of the union, and we cor- 
dially invite you to become members.

BROWNING AT SHAFER. 



During the half hour from nine-thirty to ten 
o'clock on the evening of October second, Shafer 
living-room witnessed a most unusual demonstration 
of the famous news carrying from Ghent to Ais by a 
band of riders before its own fireside. Elizabeth 
Roop read the poet's version of the incident, while 
Shafer's strong riders presented their version. By 
urging on rocking-chair steeds, whose necks were 
fashioned according to the manner of hockey 
sticks, Dorothy Roberts, Margaret Woods and 
Dorothy Baldwin gave a vivid realization of the 
difficulties of the ride. The scenery also moved, 
especially the electric light globe, which slowly 
"sank to rest" from its height into a soft green 
cushion upon the floor. As soon as the hero and 
his steed galloped into Aix (on the west side of the 
fireplace) its citizens rushed out to meet them, 
reviving horse and rider with denatured alcohol as 
the poet's and actors' version came to a simul- 
taneous ending.

ELECTIONS. 

The following girls were elected to office by the 

Senior class on Thursday, October first.: 

Jessie Edwards, Recording Secretary. 

Ruth Chapin, Corresponding Secretary.

Eleanor Boyer, Debating Club Member. 

The class of 1916 elected Amy Rothchild their 
Debating Club Member. 

After the class meeting the Seniors formed a 
procession and marched on to the green where 
"centre," "second floor centre" and "third floor 
centre " were marked by signs. Following out the 
old custom the Seniors cheered their new officers 
from their Senior place, and then, singing their class 
song, moved to their Freshman place on "third 
floor centre" where they cheered their Freshman 
cheer and sang a Freshman song. At the Sophomore 
place "Here comes our Edith now" commemorated 
Sophomore year. Whistle-blowing at the Junior 
place and a cheer for forensic burning brought 
1915's history up to Senior year. So, in spite of 
difficulties, was an ancient custom perpetuated. 

PIT PARTY AT WOOD. 



An open fire, and dim rafters that might 
be trees, such was the mis en scene of 
Wood's inspirational pit-party, given on Wednes- 
day the thirtieth as a house-warming to the new 
girls from the old. The multitude trooped in gaily 
to the metamorphosed dining-room, squatted in 
pit-ish attitudes on the floor, and conversed with 
true Woodsian hilarity. Refreshments were the 
familiar roasted sausages, crullers and other 
delicacies; the evening closed with an amateuy 
song-rehearsal of "They say that the Splinters ther 
ain't got no style."

WELLESLEY PHOTOS WIN WAR. 



Hundreds of Soldiers to Wear Pictures of 
Pretty Girls. Boston Photographer Worn 
Out With Fifteen-Minute Appointments. 
Taking Pictures Which will be Equally 
Distributed by the Red Cross. 
Several thousand photographs of Wellesley 
girls in different poses, are to be shipped to Europe 
by the Wellesley Red Cross steamship "Legenda," 
as evidence of Wellesley's interest in the war. A 
well-known Boston photographer (whose picture 
we print) is almost on the verge of a breakdown from 
taking six poses in every fifteen minutes all day 
long. The fair maidens who haunt his studio in pur- 
suil "I their altruistic mission, cannot be persuaded 
to ilivulgu much information, but the following 
plans have been learned. Wellesley, is, of course, 
interested in the war, and "hates to think of those 
poor soldiers hastening alone to the field," with no 
personal motive. After delving in tales of old- 
time chivalrous combats, it was decided that 
pictures of pretty girls might prove a helpful im- 
petus, since the war is too far started to be alto- 
gether stopped. Pictures are, therefort-. being 
taken, and will be shipped to the battle-field, on 
lirl'i Day, which will be a great occasion. The 
photographs, in accordance with President Wilson's 
desire for neutrality, are being made as uniform as 
possible, and each will be wrapped in a five-cent 
pocket handkerchief. The student body voted to 
accompany the steamship to help in distribution, bu: 
were deterred from their purpose by the Acadei 
Council. So the "Legenda pictures," as the 
fondly call them, must go forth alone, but man] 
longing thought will accompany them.

WELLESLEY AMAZONS ORGANIZING. 



Wellesley, Mass., October 3 — The Freshman and 
Sophomore classes arc believed to be mobilizing. 
The latter have already marched in regimental file 
with drum and fife through the town, and the 
Freshmen are expected soon to follow. It is believ< d 
that they are considering an ultimatum of some 
sort. Camp-fires were seen last night in the direc- 
tion of the Pit. 



WELLESLEY GIRLS LEARN SPINSTER- 
OLOGY. 



The Wellesley College News for October 1 
tells of an Old Maids' Dormitory which has been 
opened in Wellesley this fall. This organization, 
which has been more cordially received at the 
College than the aforementioned Marriage Club, 
is another example of the vocational specialization of 
the day. It aims to prepare thoroughly those who 
propose to take up the life-work of spinsterhood. 
It is reported that there will be transferred to this 
house, from the old entrance to College Hall, the 
pillars bearing the inscription of long Freshmen 
[radii ion: '"Who enters lien abando ns hop.." 
The house is well removed from Tupelo Point. 



BOSTON GIRLS POPULAR. 




wo well-known Boston girls (whose names and 
tictures we print) are so popular out at Wellesley 
that their classmates find it difficult to choose be-

New-, as the most important of all).

INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR GIRLS 
IN SPAIN. 

This month marks the beginning of the term 
of office of Miss Mabel E. Haywood as Executive 
Secretary to the International Institute for Girls 
in Spain. Miss Haywood, whose home is in Wash- 
ington, D. C, is a graduate of Goucher College, 
Baltimore. She has spent most of her life in Span- 
ish-speaking countries and two years ago served 
the Institute as teacher of gymnastics and higher 
English. She will devote her time this winter to 
addressing girls in those institutions which are so 
loyally supporting this sister school in Madrid. 

Miss Susan D. Huntington, the Directora of the 
International Institute, after making a short visit 
to this country, has sailed again for Spain. At 
the informal reception given her at the head- 
quarters of the Institute, 603 Pierce Building, 
Boston, Miss Huntington met those most closely 
associated with the work in Spain and gave a short 
account of the progress of the Institute. She 
told of the school year just passed, with its students, 
more in number than ever before, drawn from all 
parts of Spain, from South America and other 
countriesas well, of the English course, which shows 
the greatest increase in numbers, the promising 
initial year of the normal course, the graduate 
department of ten students, four of them graduates 
of American universities, and the gratifying re- 
sults of the public examinations. The large enrol- 
ment has made heavy demands upon the dormi- 
tory rooms and it was found necessary to turn over 
to the boarding students every room that could 
be made available. Toward the end of the year 
Miss Huntington received the decoration of As- 
torga from the Crown in recognition of the value 
of the Institute to the community.

MISSIONARY AND RED C ROSS FUNDS. 

Any members of the Faculty or any students still 
unsupplied with pledge cards, provided by the 
Missionary Committee for the purpose of raising 
the annual Wellesley Missionary Fund, can obtain 
them at any time by applying at the Christian 
Association office at Billings Hall. 

Attention is called to the fact that all the loose 
change given in the offering at the morning service 
on October 4 is to be devoted to the work of the Red 
Cross Association. If there are any members of 
the College who were not present at that service who 
wish to contribute to this fund, they may leave their 
gifts with the General Secretary of the Christian 
Association at Billings Hall. 

CHANGE IN MISSIONARY VESPERS. 

Missionary Vespers are to be made doubly 
attractive this year by the addition of special music. 

CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATIO N MEETING. 

Rachel Davis, 1915, gave a good, practical talk- 
on every-day Christianity at the campus Christian 
Association meeting on Wednesday evening, Septem- 



ber 30 One noteworthy sentence with regard to 
church going was a quotation from a Silver Bay 
speaker: "If you can find a church with which you 
feel perfectly satisfied, don't join it, you'll hinder 
its progress." 

A delightful feature of the meetings this year is 
the large and enthusiastic choir, which leads the 
singing, and is practising music for speciil oc- 
casions. Now that there are no meetings Wednes- 
day afternoon, the Christian Association meetings 
deserve a continuation of the splendid attendance 
which has marked the beginning of their year. 



THEATER NOTICES. 

"Potash and Perlmutter." 
"Potash and Perlmutter," comes to the Tremont 
Theater on October 5, direct from its second year's 
run at the Cohan Theater, New York. While the 
three-act comedy is filled with laughter, the plot 
itself is serious enough, and comedy alternates with 
pathos. Pinochle and Politics, Love and Law con- 
tribute to the rapid succession of incidents. The 
three acts carry the principals from the old- 
fashioned down-town establishment of the firm to 
a modern up-town office and work-shop, and finally 
to the Potash home. Care has been taken 
to reproduce these scenes with utmost fidelity 
to detail and the roles are in the hands of 
New York favorites. 



The fifth week of William Hodge in "The Road 
to Happiness" at the Wilbur Theater in Boston, 
shows steady success and increasing popularity. 

Mr. Hodge, his old, familiar and likable self 
in a comedy of Upper New York State, "The Road 
to Happiness." The piece makes Mr. Hodge, a 
young country law student with a fund of pro- 
verbial wisdom, the center of a story that is 
often melodramatic. Mr. Hodge acts capitallv.

SUMMER WORK. 



Of the many fields of work open to college students 
in the summer, here are some which enabled girls 
to return this fall. Besides the ancient and honor- 
able domestic work of waiting on table, many other 
occupations, pleasant as well as remunerative, pre- 
sented themselves. 

Two examples of work done in and about the 
house deserve particular mention. One girl made 
and baked bread for several neighbors. Another 
did general farm work, which, as most of us realize, 
requires a large amount of time and energy. The 
work consisted of various chores, such as taking care 
of twenty-two goats, a pony, a pig and dogs and 
cats, picking berries, vegetables and potato-bugs; 
trirnming vines, transplanting and weeding plants. 

But college girls know how to train children as 
well as animals of a lower nature, as is demonstrated 
by the fact that one of our members tutored seven 
boys and girls in arithmetic, algebra, French and 
Latin. The good, old-fashioned "reading and 
writing and arithmetic" were taught to fourth grade 
students by another student in a Western summer 
school. A great many assisted in Daily Vacation 
Bible Schools. 

Of secretarial and office positions one girl acted 
as switch-board operator in her home town, re- 
ceiving all of the toll calls, and another worked as 
secretary and bookkeeper at a large private camp 
for girls. 

Every summer a great many college girls act as 
councillors at camps. Last summer some taught 
physical training, including boiting, swimming, and 
dancing. Other girls, as craft teachers, gave in- 
struction in carpentry, leather-work, embroidery and 
the setting of jew'elry. 

Finally there are the girls who helped themselves 
by means of their own talents. One girl played the 
violin even - day at a summer hotel near her home. 
Another, naturally gifted in music, gave three con- 
certs and an operetta,. She not only wrote the 
words and music for the operetta, adapting and 
rearranging the material from an old fairy tale, but 
in addition, drilled and encouraged fifty-two 
children for its performance. 

These occupations show 7 that college girls possess 
initiative, courage and resource. Moreover, they 
have had the added advantage of widening their 
sympathies and experiences by getting into closer 
contact with the great school of work.
